The Ferry Plaza Farmers Market operates year-round from 8 am to 2 pm.

On most Saturdays, free cooking demos take place in the CUESA Classroom (under the white tents in front of the Ferry Building) and are free to the public, with recipes and samples for all.

Growing up in the Basque region of France surrounded by a cooking culture, Chef Gerald Hirigoyen’s interest in the kitchen started at an early age. After having developed his skills in his hometown of Biarritz, Chef Hirigoyen moved to Paris to start his patisserie apprenticeships at the age of thirteen, before coming to the Bay Area more than 30 years ago. He worked at several restaurants and began cultivating what would become his signature: incorporating fresh ingredients into simple yet scrumptious dishes that echo the local spirit as well as that of his homeland. Chef Hirigoyen and a partner opened their modern French bistro – Fringale – in 1991, which made him “an instant star” according to Michael Bauer’s review in the San Francisco Chronicle.
